In this workshop we will use outside materials to spur our own poems, creating drafts from diary entries, letters, photos, other poems, and even the fears and phobias of our fellow workshop participants. Come prepared to write, and have at the ready a news article and a photo, journal entry, letter, or email/text that has some emotional resonance for you. The exercises will be flexible, so there is no “wrong” item. Open to all levels.
